Alexandria - Old Town Office

109 S. Pitt Street
Alexandria, VA 22314 Directions
Phone: 703-549-9292

As an Alexandria native that grew up in Old Town, I know this town.  In 2005, after a 17 year tenure in local banking, I transitioned into real estate.  It was a relatively easy move, because I’m following the footsteps of my late mother, who built a long and distinguished career at McEnearney.  I’m pleased to continue her legacy in a city I cherish, by bringing my clients customized service and care – just as she did.

As a top performing real estate agent at McEnearney Associates, I draw upon my extensive banking experience to help my clients make the important financial decisions related to buying or selling a home.  Clients put their trust in me and I return that confidence by being approachable and accessible.  A real estate transaction is a huge decision, and I want to help my clients make the right one.

As a listing agent, I offer sellers another pair of eyes to go through their house and make recommendations on how to best present it.  I point out where they can add value and I incorporate those points into the marketing of the property.  My job is to make the sale go as smoothly and rewarding as possible.

For many years I have actively volunteered  and held leadership positions with both the Historic Alexandria Foundation’s Antique Show and the Washington Antiques Show; the Alexandria Red Cross; and my alma maters: St. Stephen’s & St. Agnes School, and Hollins University.  I’m also a member of the Garden Club of Alexandria and have been actively involved with the Historic Garden Week tour.    My husband and I love to cook, garden, and entertain, and our daughter keeps us busy with school and her extracurricular activities. 

I welcome the opportunity to work with new clients and to assist with their real estate buying or selling needs.  I am very easy to work with, accessible, and ready to help my clients find the perfect home! Please give me a call at 703-338-6007 or drop me an e-mail: mbavin@mcenearney.com.

" Mason helped me find the perfect place for my parents when I was looking to move them from their big home to an condo that would meet their needs and be easier for them manage and still live independently. Mason took great care in thinking about the needs of the whole family, my parents and myself. She was able to focus our efforts to efficiently find the best location. She handled the whole process with grace and professionalism. We highly recommend Mason. She has wonderful knowledge of the area."

" Pat Day & Mason Bavin are great! They always go the extra mile in marketing and get their home listings sold quickly. We had an excellent experience with them in selling our home in Alexandria, VA., this past spring. Not only do they have many years of successful experience in representing clients and in home buying and selling, they also make very constructive and gentle suggestions for simple changes in decorating that will make your home much more appealing to buyers. They are professional, reliable, friendly and comforting. Pat has helped us buy and sell homes around Alexandria for the past 20 years and Mason is an Alexandria native and experienced agent. They will tell you the hard facts but they are always positive in their motivation!"

– Eve & Ron

" Working with Mason and Pat was truly a pleasure! They opened our minds to new possibilities and we’ve found our perfect dream house-and we weren’t even looking! We couldn’t be happier with our decision and look back on the experience with great fondness."

– Ines & Mike

" We felt we were in great hands with Mason. She provided great advice as we sold our house and bought a new one. Most importantly, we always felt that she was always there for us and looking out for our best interests. We highly recommend her!"

– Tom & Kris Schulz

" They genuinely care about meeting the needs of their clients and are extremely bright and responsive. We owe them a debt of gratitude for closing our complicated deal. They are first class individuals.… who sincerely care about their realtor craft."

– Kristie & Ted

" Mason is the consummate professional, and what discerning buyers should expect from their realtor.  She listens well, recommends according to buyer preferences; takes feedback gracefully; and, her follow-through is thorough, accurate and on-time. Even after the closing, Mason went out of her way to connect us with area suppliers, and make us feel welcome here in her home town of Alexandria. Overall, we had a great experience with McEnearney, and Mason Bavin in particular.  Thank you!"

– Susan & Chris

" If you are looking for an amazing real estate agent in Alexandria VA, then look no further! Mason is exceptionally professional and was always there to take my calls, which were many and answered all my concerns with a calmness and professionalism that was second to none. Mason has immense integrity that was obvious from our first meeting and from that first day to our closing 30 days later I am honored to now call Mason a close family friend. Trustworthy, professional, & efficient are clearly part of Masons DNA. Thank you Mason for everything. You make this business look effortless, which as we all know is not! You are the best!"

– Niamh

" Dear Pat and Mason:   Please accept my sincerest gratitude and praise for your tireless efforts.  Without your market expertise and professionalism, my Dad’s house would probably still be “for sale” instead of sold and settled.  Additionally, your oversight and attention to detail with needed repair/reno work proved invaluable to me since I live a couple of hours away. Having bought and sold several homes over the years, I can really appreciate the talent and diligence you both bring to the table.  This transaction was by far the smoothest and most trouble-free sale that I have ever experienced.  Thank you for your keen assessment of the current housing situation in Alexandria.  Your personal touch, professional demeanor, and teamwork fostered a “win/win” environment throughout the entire process. Every home buyer and seller should get to enjoy your very professional services!  I wholeheartedly recommend you to anyone wanting to buy or sell real estate in Alexandria.  You will both certainly continue to flourish and have much future success!"

" To Prospective Real Estate Clients We heartily recommend Pat Day and Mason Montague Bavin for any of your real estate needs. Pat and Mason are a great team and provided invaluable support selling our house in northern Virginia. When we decided to sell our rental property, they started out with a comprehensive review of both the market and the state of the property. They coordinated some much-needed updates and ensured everything was ready to hit the market at the start of the fall market. Pat and Mason continued to monitor the market and kept us apprised on activity. When we got an offer, they provided great advice on our strategy for negotiations. After we had a finalized contract, they continued to stay on top of things, helping us address Homeowners Association mandated repairs and the home inspection contingency resolution. Throughout the process, Pat and Mason did a great job of representing us as the client and keeping our interests first and foremost. If there is any need for us to acquire or sell real estate in the DC area in the future, there is no doubt in our minds that we will once again call Pat and Mason. If you are in the market either as a seller or a buyer, you cannot go wrong with Pat and Mason as your real estate agent team."

– Mark & Lori

" I want to thank you so very much for all of your hard work in getting my condo sold in just 1 week!  From the advice you gave me on the preparation for sale of my unit to the contract negotiation and closing, you were always readily available to me and answered all of my questions.  I will recommend you to anybody that I know searching for realtors.  I cannot thank you enough for making the entire process go smoothly!  You both make a great team!  Thank you!  Christina Sadorf I so appreciate you both!"

– Christina

" Mason did a great job selling our house in a tough “buyer’s market.” In our sale, “crunch time” occurred after the contract was signed, and before closing. Mason pulled out all the stops, at just the right time to make sure our deal stayed on track to a timely close, on terms that everyone could live with. In our case, ironing out post ratification wrinkles required good judgment and timely access to a wide variety resources and experience only available at a large and seasoned firm like McEnearney. In the end, everything was pulled together like clockwork, and we were convinced that we had chosen the right listing agent.”"

– Latane

" Mason Bavin drives results! What we anticipated to be a three-plus month process to find the perfect house, ended up being just six weeks! We’re now settled and loving our home in a terrific neighborhood and community where we never imagined possible. Mason was incredibly responsive. From the first e-mail right through the closing, Mason listened and paid attention to our needs and desires, then responded with excellent coaching as we visited listed homes. She did such a great job preparing us for house-hunting and purchasing that we found our home in just one weekend. Mason also has a good real estate network of colleagues and service providers who met and exceeded our expectations as they effortlessly guided us through lending, the offer, a title, the closing, and services set-up for our move-in. We hope it is obvious that we highly recommend Mason Bavin for your real estate needs and investment. She is top-notch!"

– M & D Lohmeyer

– Jeff

" We could not be more pleased with the kind, thoughtful and expertly professional manner of both buying and selling a home with Mason. She is an absolute gem! "

– John & Claire

" Mason knows the local market well and goes beyond the call of duty in helping to find or sell a home. Our experience was met beyond expectation even in these uncertain times. Mason makes you feel as if you are her only client and makes the transactions easy and understandable." If you are thinking Real Estate think Mason.....your only choice for bringing together exceptional properties for exceptional people. "

– Edwin N. Vinson

" We looked at both rental and purchase options with Mason. She was very professional and prepared to help us search for both property types. Her knowledge of the area is amazing and made our search easier. She also gave us several recommendations for a mortgage lender which was a big help. We definitely recommend Mason! "

– Linda & Bruce

" Mason Bavin is our agent -- she's very sweet, easy to work with, and she's a third (or more?) generation Old Towner and knows everyone and everything in Alexandria. She's very organized, does everything in a timely fashion, scans and emails documents to you immediately after they're finalized, and works her schedule to accommodate yours. I would recommend her highly."

– Elise

" Recently, we found out we were moving to the northern Virginia area for the third time and knew from past experience we wanted to live in Old Town Alexandria. After asking friends for recommendations on a Realtor, we were introduced to the wonderful Mason Bavin. We were stationed overseas at the time and were able to work with her long distance and she was prepared to show us properties as soon as we arrived. Mason assessed our needs and adapted her search of homes for us, showing all that was available for purchase or rent, asking and answering many, many questions. When our job situation changed and it was necessary for us to rent, nothing in Mason's level of service changed. We still received her undivided attention, professional courtesy, and full support in finding a rental home. We had to leave the area for a short time and she followed up with us daily, finding the perfect rental through her vast network of contacts, in the exact location we wanted, handling the process over the phone, Internet and through the mail. We were able to move into our Old Town home and settle in with full faith and confidence that it was the right decision because Mason took the time to get to know us and our desires for what we needed in our home. A few weeks ago we had family who were house hunting in Maryland and having a difficult time. When they asked how to find a trustworthy Realtor, we thought of Mason. One phone call to her and in no time at all, we had the name of a wonderful Realtor who was licensed in Maryland and who turned out to be of great help. Again, Mason was there when we needed her, even when it would be of no financial gain to her. Mason Bavin is that special person you can develop a relationship with and she will go above and beyond to help her clients, no matter the situation."

– Ross & Deidre

" Mason was incredibly helpful to us. We were completely new to the area and she helped to orient us and to identify a good location for our needs. She was sensitive to what we liked and to our concerns and was very patient. We couldn’t recommend her more highly! "

– Rebecca & Richard

" I was Mason's first client and, from the start, was impressed with her people skills and organization. She knows the trends and demographics of our area. She will go the extra mile for you and be there from the start to the end. I would not hesitate to recommend her to others (and have!)."

– Charlie

" Mason & Pat, Thank you for the way you took us in and so effortlessly helped us find such a fantastic house. We really feel like we have found our home. We are incredibly impressed! "

– Ivy & Anthony

" Mason was wonderful. She was very patient and forever optimistic. She made a first-time buying experience go smoothly. She was always reliable and very responsive to e-mails, phone calls, etc. We worked with several realtors in the past and said to ourselves that we are going to McEnearney Associates next! They did not disappoint and we will work with McEnearney Associates and Mason again when we sell, if we ever do. We will recommend both McEnearney Associates and Mason to all of our friends. "

– Robert & Anna

" Mason's professionalism, organization, attention to detail, and warm, personable manner make doing business with her a pleasure."

– Charlie

" My husband and I were looking to move to Old Town Alexandria, but were not very unfamiliar with the area. Lucky for us, Mason Bavin at McEnearney Associates became our real estate agent. Mason not only educated us on Old Town, but found us a fabulous property. Mason is the consummate professional, very knowledgeable, patient, friendly, accommodating, and honest. Working with Mason was an extremely positive experience, and a buyer/renter will be very fortunate to have the opportunity to be represented by Mason. "

– Christine

" Mason exceeded our expectations in terms of time spent to look at homes. She had a good sense of what we were looking for after a couple of home visits. Following her advice helped us find and purchase a home within 30 days- can’t beat that service! "

– Maria & Dean

" I really enjoyed working with you. Your involvement with the process is, in my opinion, perfect. I wish all of my agents treated the process the way you do. Please think of me again when you need a good, friendly banker. Cheers. "

– Alec, Lender

" Mason, We cannot thank you enough for all of your help with both house hunting and house-selling earlier this year. Your patience and guidance was a great comfort to us as we navigated the various challenges of the real estate process. It was great to know that you were always there to look out for us every step of the way and ready to do what was needed to get our house sold and us into our new dream home. We appreciate all of your help, patience and guidance. We are so thrilled with our new house, and we appreciate everything you did to help make that a reality for us! "

– Ryan & Whitney

" We cannot recommend Mason more highly. Her professionalism, knowledge and attention to detail were impeccable. She worked with us diligently, and thoroughly to make sure that we felt comfortable with each step of the process from listing, staging, showing and then through the contract negotiations. We couldn't be happier with the result as we had a fantastic contract within 3 days of listing in a tough real estate market! "

– Ed & Tricia Karppi

" Both Mason and Pat gave me some excellent advice to market my home and were both wonderful with all aspects of communication. "

– Joan

" Mason continuously considered my “wants” in a home until I found something in my price range that I liked. She had my needs and more importantly my interests in mind. She made buying a home in Virginia easy by explaining all of the new areas of Virginia law without reservation. "

– William

" I have known and worked with Mason Bavin for over ten years and I would highly recommend her to anyone needing a trusted advisor and advocate. I’ve gotten to see first hand her real estate expertise. Over the course of our years working together, Mason first helped me to buy my townhouse and later helped me set it up as a rental, and then finally helped me to sell it. Having seen all phases of the process while owning this home, I am thrilled to have chosen to work with Mason Bavin and to know that she really does “go the extra mile” for her clients."

" Mason Bavin and Pat Day expertly handled the recent sale of my Alexandria townhome, and I was very happy to have had their experience and support to deftly guide me from pre-listing to post-sale. They knew the local market and were spot-on with their recommendations, from establishing the asking price through negotiating the final contract. I also appreciated their recommendations for options and tradespeople who would ensure the house was market ready. Selling one's home can be an emotionally difficult process, and this McEnearney team worked hard to keep the stress levels low by keeping the lines of communication open-- sympathetically listening to my concerns, explaining what I didn't understand and offering options for ways to proceed. As I had already purchased my next home, they understood I wanted to move quickly with the sale. Only 1 month from listing to recordation of sale; I call that success! If you're looking for real estate agents to represent YOU, I highly recommend the dynamic duo, Pat and Mason. "
